Spring projects

Tuesday was a work day here at Anson farms. A big thank you to Esther, Moses and Micah for all their hard work. We were able to get the garden ready, potatoes and onions planted, chickens moved to pens and other misc. work done. It was a lot of work, but sure was nice to see all that we accomplished! Here are a few shots of the day!I have a great husband! I love you !
One raised bed done, 4 to go.

Hopefully later posts with show pictures of the produce we reap!

This happy guy is enjoying being outside!

50 chicks per pen

"How much water do we need?"

" I think there is a hole in the hose Dad!"


Last Saturday we headed up to Lincoln for some important spring business. For Scott is was the Husker spring game, and with friends to sit with, he was excited! He was going to take Paul with him, but the weather was a bit cool- and we were not sure how he would do sitting for hours in the stands- Oh well, he will have many games to come I am sure! :)
While Scott was at the game, I met up with my friend Mandi, (former Lincoln resident and shopping expert) and with Paul, Marcus and Esther, (we thought an extra hand would be a help!) we headed out. We first started at the "real" stores, and after a look through Old Navy and similar stores, I came away shaking my head and thinking, "Do people really buy stuff there- FULL PRICE???" Wow- I don't get out very often and the sticker shock will really grab you! Then we moved further north into town and hit the real bargins. I was mostly looking for winter coats for the boys for next year, and the Lord blessed with a great winter coat, and a fall type jacket for Paul and then a Land's End, excellent condition coat for a few years down the line.
For $2.98, who could resist?
All in all, it was a busy and fun day. I was able to pick up a lot of good stuff for the boys and even a few things for me! Thrift stores are the best!

Easter fun from Grandma Sue

This week Paul enjoyed opening a box from Grandma Sue. She sent out some Easter goodies for us and Paul had the honors of digging into the box. Thank you Mama Sue! What is in here?


My favorite! I was hoping it opened!

I sure do!

This sippy is great, you can make all sorts of noises with it!

My boys

God has really blessed me with a wonderful family. I love them so much! I can't wait until it warms up some more and we can be outside as a family. I am ready to be done with winter. I want to plant my garden, play hide and seek and have picnics. Oh well, I guess we will wait- not much else we can do!I am a cutie!

And I am tired!

Mom, that is sooo funny!

A budding gardener?

Or just a mud lover :)

Maybe a bit of musical talent?

Definatly a one man show.

My favorite... Caught on candid camera
